[First Look] Open Road’s Marlon Wayans Horror Comedy ‘A Haunted House’

A Haunted House

It was recently announced that Open Road Films, in partnership with Endgame Entertainment, has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Michael Tiddes’ A Haunted House, co-written by and starring Marlon Wayans, from IM Global. This morning the first images found their way online and pretty much only display Wayans making crazy faces.

In the Wayans family tradition of successful movies like Scary Movie 1 & 2, Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, and, most recently, Dance Flick, Marlon Wayans co-wrote the script for A Haunted House, along with Rick Alvarez, who has produced several Wayans family movies.

Open Road Films will release A Haunted House – which stars Marlon Wayans, Cedric The Entertainer, David Koechner, Nick Swardson and Essence Atkins – nationwide on January 11, 2013.

In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A Haunted House features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.
